Any ideas to make this dining room and foyer work better. Big problem with light fixtures.

We bought a lake house so I am keeping it very casual except the previous owners put in arches and columns to the dining room. I thought about painting the fixtures and thought the green of the draperies might work. The drapes will be hung from the ceiling and wall to wall. The rug was a mistake does anyone have any suggestions. I have been furnishing this house with hand me downs and garage sales and my primary house. Trying to keep expenses down. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The living room in this open house plan has a stone fireplace and a wood plank wall. The columns and arches seem out of place but it would probably be major to change.

Love the drapery fabric but can't see them with your furniture, unless you use it on the chairs too. Here are some favorite fixtures of mine. Two for the foyer choice and one for the table if you like them.
Sausalito Semi Flush Ceiling Light
Sausalito Five-Light Chandelier
Circlet Lantern

Your chairs appear cream and your wall look yellow, some picture look more of a mustard but it is hard to tell. Pull in an accent wall from one of the colours in your area rug like chocolate or the deep red? and paint the other walls to accent it. You can then also carry the accent colour into your foyer.
